iOS 7 Acceptance Increases than Android 4.4 KitKat

Android device users are also as excited as the iOS users to grab the latest OS for their device. Though, most Android handsets cannot be upgraded unless the carrier shows a green signal for the new operating system, and normally it takes long time. Apple’s OS model avoids wireless network operators, which gives an edge to Apple over Android, that’s why iOS 7 acceptance increases than the Android 4.4 KitKat.

You would to be astonished to know that about more than half of the iOS users updated to the new iOS 7 in the North America within 7 days after the release, according to the Chitika Insights (an online advertising network). After 2.5 months later, the adoption rate of iOS 7 in the North America has increased up to 70%, giving it an edge over Android and a title of the fastest adopted operating system so far.

iPhone users seem quite quicker in adopting the new OS than the iPad users. After detailed speculation done by the Chitika Insights conducted between 25 October and 18 November, 74.1% of the iPhone owners have switched to the iOS 7, while only 63% of the iPad owners have updated to iOS 7. Amazingly, iOS 6 is still in the air and being used on 22.4% of the iPhones and 24.6% of the iPads. A very minor number (2.6%) of iPhone owners is still relying on iOS 5 while 8.8% of the iPad users are running iOS 5.

The adoption rate of Android OS remains far behind to that of iOS 7, as Google says in its newly released monthly breakdown stats, Google’s Android KitKat 4.4 has only 1.1% adoption rate of the Android devices. It’s important to keep in mind that Chitika conducted adoption rate only in the North America, while Google does it worldwide.
